Brianna is a Licensed Professional Counselor, amateur rider, and equine enthusiast. Her clinical background is in treatment of eating disorders, trauma and family therapy. Through her professional and personal experiences, she recognizes and intuitively understands the need for helping equestrians looking for their own individualized mental health support.
"Brianna helped me shift the lens in which I viewed my relationship with my horse and my “why’s” behind riding, training, and showing. I now feel at peace knowing at the end of the day it’s just me and my horse. I was able to let go of thoughts and feelings that weren’t serving me well. Our show and training trajectory has forever been changed!"
"After an accident my confidence was ground zero and there wasn’t a part of riding that didn’t make me anxious. Everything seemed like it would end in disaster consistently. After Brianna I can own my thoughts while still addressing human nerves and fears in a healthy way. I have a lot less fear of the unknown now and I can heave a more clear mindset when I’m riding now. It helped bring back joy to a sport I was ready to quit and pretend I never did."
"Brianna really helped me work through the trauma of the fall, and gave me concrete exercises to do in the moment to deal with my mind and body's fear/anxiety response. I worked with her right before our first horse show back after the injury. I used all the tools she gave me and had a great horse show - was able to overcome the mental hurdles and fear/anxiety, we even ended being show champion!"
